All the healing forces reside originally in the human breathing system.
Breath is life, words are power, diet is health.
Breath is the door to the heart and the soul.
Amy Leigh McCree
If the breathing is at all unsettled, life is not your own.
Ancestral teacher Qiu
For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth.
The nose is for breathing, the mouth is for eating.
Strong emotions, feelings, STRESS and the breath
Breath is the pulse of the brain.
We breathe our thoughts.
Breath is the link between the mind and the body.
Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.
Thích Nhất Hạnh
Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Concious breathing is my anchor
Thích Nhất Hạnh
If you don’t get it off your chest you will never be able to breathe.
A healthy mind has an easy breath.
When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath.
Svatmarama, Hatha Yoga Pradipika
Good breathing should be quiet and gentle
The greatest luxury in life is peaceful breathing because it repairs the wounds of the cosmic soul.
“Yes, they are elves,” Legolas said. “and they say that you breathe so loud they could shoot you in the dark.” Sam hastily covered his mouth.”
How I feel sometimes!
For years I tried to help people with simple things, such as tension relief through breathing and relaxation, but all they wanted were the drugs. They wanted to numb themselves. They did not want to face their fears or feel better through their own efforts—and they certainly did not want to be illuminated.
It’s funny, but you never really think much about breathing. Until it’s all you ever think about.
